Help with packing for safari in August

Jump to last reply

Hello. This is my first posting with Fodor's and I am excited to be able to get help from the EXPERTS. My husband and I will be visiting Africa for our first Safari from 20 Aug. 07 thru 3 Sept. I would like some advice on packing i.e. clothes and extras. I have some idea from visiting this site recently, but am ready to get detailed information. We will be in Tanzania, the Serengeti (4 days) Kenya, and finally ending in Uganda where we will go Gorilla trekking for 2 days.

If there is a site that has a good list to go by then I would be extremely happy with that or if any of you guys have made a detailed list of what you have taken, that would be even better.

Thanks for any help you can give. I look forward to talking to you when other questions come up and I am sure they will.
